I recently graduated college with my BFA in Musical Theatre, and I have always found spending time caring for children to be a source of inspiration for me. In addition to babysitting for nine years, I also have been able to work as a camp counselor for Broadway Bound OC and promote a passion for acting, singing and dancing and all things creative in children, ages 5-14. One of my most proud moments was when a child wrote me a letter at the end of a camp thanking me for being so “awesome” and saying that she wanted to “be a musical theatre” like me when she grew up.
When working with children, I find it important to encourage a sense of structure as well as the freedom to explore and learn creatively. For example, when taking care of an 11 year old boy who had a limit on “screen time,” and the time was up, we created an intricate Mario-Kart race course out of Legos instead. Witnessing that sense of creativity blossom was a treasure. In addition to childcare, acting, singing, and dancing, I also really enjoy cooking, baking, writing, reading, painting, and running. I feel it is important to promote a healthy lifestyle in regards to food and activity.
